I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all, My question relates to this motherboard -Asus cuv4x-c.
The orignal psu did burn out, I pulled it apart to find scorch marks around some of the components I dont know the history of this board I assume this is a power surge problem!?
I connected it to 500w Gigatech atx, connected the cvd-rw, harddrive, floppy and power supply to the board itself. Switched on the power and no l.e.d s lit, the fan in the power supply started but the fan on the proccessor did not, there are no other fans in this box. On inspection of the board( after dissconecting from power) there seems to be no obvious signs of burnt out parts, none of the Solder has melted or scorched, the circuit board looks intact.
What is the best way forward here- test with multi meter perhaps, what else should I be looking for?? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:Asus cuv4x-c. mobo wont power up.

My guess is that you've had a power surge or lightning strike that has fried both the powersupply and the motherboard. This can also happen if you plug something into the board (e.g. a PCI card, or stick of RAM) while power is applied to it, as this may short it out. There don't necessarily have to be any visible scorch marks on the board for it to have been damaged by a surge, the powersupply took the brunt of it. Do you have insurance?

If my motherboard supports 1.5GB of ram, can I install three 512mb SDRAM memory chips?

I have the ASUS CUV4X with three memory banks. My custom build system came with 256mb ( two 128mb chips ) of ram and I added a 256mb chip into the third slot about 5 months ago. Now that I am running XP Pro and ram is very cheap, I want to scrap all of the ram and install three 512mb chips.

Any advice, comments, suggestions? Even at $50 per 512mb SDRAM, am I wasting time and money? I've always thought you can't possibly have too much ram.....

A:Asus CUV4X & Ram

The ram should work with the board but.

Unless you do graphics work, rendering, it's really not need, 512 is enough for just about anything else.

Just got a used Asus board and a PIII 866MHZ socket 370.. The problem i'm having is that it seems like the Processor is overheating. Therefore not booting up probably and sometimes freezing in the bios setup screen.. The reason I think it's over heating is because when I look at the Hardware monitor in the bios setup, the CPU temperature is pretty high and the color is red.. I've set the core voltage to 1.7, it's also being detected as an 866MHZ.. Is it possible that I need a bigger fan for the CPU or something? It is a fan for a socket 370 board and the fan is running.. Any suggestions would be appreciated..

Need to install 4-1 driver for chipset. Tried to install ver 437 had no luck with it. It looks like when the hardware wizard tries to install the driver for "Via VT83C572/VT82C586 PCI to USB Universal Host Controller" it can not find it because it asks for Win 98 CD. Has anyone run in to this problem? Tried to get support from place that i bought this M/B from but they are baffled. They wanted me to upgrade my Bios but i said that will be my last option.

A:Asus CUV4X-E BIOS VER 1003

your question is a bit vague

when installing a new driver it is often the case that you need the original windows 95 or 98 or 98se or millenium disk to fully install the driver
if it asks for the windows disc just insert in cd rom

you might have to point in the right direction but just use the browse radio button to guide it towards your cd drive

i have bios update 1005 beta 5

A:Asus cuv4x-e geforce fx 5500 video card(geforce4)

..the VGA cable from the monitor is plugged into the new gfx card isn't it? rather than the onboard vga port it presumably must have been plugged in before you fitted the card? Or have you changed gfx cards from one to another?

Is the hard disk light on the case showing any activity when your pc is switched on? Can you hear it humming away while its booting up, but just can't see anything onscreen?

A:Mobo not detecting HDMI? - ATI Radeon HD 4250 onboard ASUS mobo

It's plausible that your HDMI port on your MOBO is dead. Is it possible to obtain a GPU and try it's HDMI port?
It could be your monitor as well, do you have access to anything else supporting HDMI and see if your monitor connects?

A:Asus UX51VZ-IS71T: Question on Asus Support?

I had correspondence with ASUS via e-mail. It was a while ago now, I think it was a link on their web site. It was a waist of time really. I wasn't impressed. Replies took forever and the answers seemed to be scripted responses. I eventually just gave up asking any more questions. My issue was with creating recovery media. At that time there was no way of creating a recovery disk set in Windows 8.0. The utility I was referred to only worked in Windows 7. It became a non issue when I put an SSD in my laptop and did a clean install of 8.0.

Most of those contracted out call centers go by a flow chart. Ask this question, if the answer is yes, take this branch, if its no, take this other branch. The person asking you the questions may have no technical background at all. As soon as you say I don't know, your basically screwed. Assuming you can actually understand what they are saying. I'm not racist, but I don't think its unreasonable to be able to talk to somebody that is fluent in my native language. It seems to be the luck of the draw sometimes. I've had some that I could understand easily, and some that were almost impossible to understand.

Tommorow is black friday and im going to buy a new motherboard for my PC. I know that i have to do a clean install of windows xp (meaning i loose all of my data right?), so i was thinking of buying a new hard drive. My question is, i have alot of programs in my old hard drive (the one i'll be using as a slave), will i be able to use them? For example, I have the latest mcaffee, will i have to reinstall that in my new HD so that it can protect my computer? or will everythin be fine the way they are?

Will it be ok for me to buy an external HD and use that as a master?
Would you reccomend it?

What do you recommend me doing? I.e buy a new hd, clean install, etc.


A:I need a fast reply (mobo and hard drive)

When you reinstall windows you dont lose any files because they are saved up in your HD... so if you use the old as a slave and use a better one for master then you can just file transfer them to each other,

Also... I personaly think Mcaffee sucks =P

My GigaByte Mobo (see system spec) was purchased in 2010. I'm considering buying an SSD for the system and I want to be sure my hardware supports it using AHCI mode. When AHCI is enabled I see the following verbiage displayed during the hardware boot cycle before the OS begins to load:
Serial ATA AHCI BIOS, Version iSrc 1.20E
Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Intel Corporation
** This version supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives **
The part that worries me is the last sentence where it says "...supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives"
Does this mean the mobo does not support an SSD?

I have a Gigabyte mobo purchased in 2009 that shows the same message during boot.

I searched in both support list and I didn't find, but I think it supports each other because the RAM is DDR3-1600 and this Motherboard support DDR3-1600, but I want to be sure!

NOTE: I want also to know if there is different between buying 2x8G or 1x8G (If I want to buy each one from different store with the same name) or there is no different?

NOTE 2: I will buy Intel Core i7-3770k CPU for my Mobo


A:Need to know the RAM that support the Mobo that I will buy!

First, I think that having 16GB of ram is completely useless. Second, if you are going with Ripjaws, you are mostly an amateur gamer, but I am sorry if I'm being stereotypical. If I'm right, I am sure you don't do lots of multitasking, or video and sound editing, making 16gb of ram just a waste, Two 4GB sticks, or 4 2gb sticks would do wonder with dual channel.

Third, if your motherboard RAM compatibility list does not show the ram you are buying, don't risk it. Ask someone directly from the company, or buy ram that shows as supported. Ripjaws don't do anything that other RAM sticks cannot do and will show any difference.

However if you are just going for looks, just doublecheck with an MSI CSA to see if it would be compatible with the board even if it doesn't show in the list.

And that RAM is supported by your motherboard but it is a higher speed than your current ram, something like this would do the trick. With your currency I believe the price for this would be Rs 1879.30.

Hello SF members,

I see today uEFI is very popular, a lot of people use it...
I have ASUS P8H61-M LX2 (it have modern BIOS utility, etc. ).

So, does my mobo support uEFI?

And what is pros and cons of uEFI? I found that I need GPT formated HDD and GPT isn't recommend for HDD who have less than 2.2TB.

If my mobo support it, does I need anything other?


A:Does my mobo support uEFI?

uefi are the modern kinds of BIOS. They are better than older generation BIOS and their more obvious feature is that they have fancy graphics, they don't look like old DOS stuff. Most other things are "better" but from a customer point of view, there isn't a lot to talk about. It supports newer standards like GPT, and other modern stuff that wasn't possible with older generations of BIOS.

As for what you are saying about GPT, afaik UEFI can boot from GPT drives, but work fine with normal (MBT) drives as well. Who said that you need to use only GPT?

According to the product specs here, your BIOS is uefi already.

In any case, you can do nothing about it, as it's the manufacturer that decides what BIOS each board will have.

Geforce 6600 or Neo2 865PE-S mobo
Please help, I've looked everywhere to disable my fast write on my mobo. When I had an ATI 9800 it was in the Smartgart setting, but my Geforce has no such, so I figured it would be in bios. The only thing in bios under chipset was changing my Apeture Size for my vid card. Anyone know any windows programs or anything that I can use to disable. I believe Fastwrite is the cause of some stuttering I get in games. I used Aida32 and it showed that my mobo supports it and is enabled.
Anyhelp will do.
Thanking in advanc

I'm trying to upgrade my AMB Ath 550 on an ASUs K7M MBoard, Slot A, 200 mghz FSb. I'm try to get the fastest cpu for the least amount of money that will work on my current MB. The ASUS manual states that the board is designed for a 242 pin slot A module, PBGA. I have been researching the available cpu's on E-Bay but all the descriptions for Slot A units with 200mghz FSB state that the number of pins are 400+. Does Slot A have different spec's? Also, can I use a cpu with a greater FSB on this MB? Does PBGA have any significance?

Thanks for your help.

A:cpu for ASUS MOBO

The only cpu you can use on that motherboard is the athlon slot A processor. You might find a used processor on e-bay. I believe the fastest slot A that was made was an 850mhz. Depending on the revision of your board you may need to upgrade the BIOS to accept a processor of that speed.

From my experience, I have not seen laptops that the cpu was not soldered onto the mb. But I could be wrong but most laptops require a heck of a lot of tools and experience to take them apart and put in a new cpu.

In the long run, it might be less aggrivation to just buy a new laptop as they are getting cheaper and cheaper.
You might want to let us know why you want to change the cpu?

How to boot from USB-HDD even when your mobo dosent support it?

Basically i want to install an OS onto my ipod mini 4gb but my mobo does not support booting from a USB HDD, although it supports USB FDD and USB ZIP booting.

If such i thing exists, which im pretty sure it does i just cant find it - could you please post the link to where i can download this "boot manager"

Thank you!

A:Hot to boot from USB-HDD even when your mobo dosent support it?

Nope.. No such thing. It would be a gigantic task to put together something that would know about all USB controllers in existence and would successfully mask all the relevant BIOS interrupts to make the USB HD to look like a real hard drive..

A:Will my MOBO support a new processor and differnet RAM?

generally it is better just to stick with 2 sticks of ram. So go with 2 x 2gb if you want 4gb. (This is overkill for most applications). 2gb should be plenty.

You should not have any CPU upgrade issues, but you may require a BIOS update. Read:

Recently purchased a new ASUS mobo (P5B-VM ver. 1.3) and Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 as the core of my new games system..

Everything went together well, was checked, checked and checked again... everything was technically sound.....

EXCEPT! it got past POST (Beep!) and there was nothing... no whizzes, pops or bangs... just silence!!!!

I had resisted in buying the mobo I was gonna buy cos I'd heard that some boards were incompatible, with Core 2 Duo processors, straight out of the box... they were compatible in a sense, just that they needed a BIOS update!!!

So am I one of ASUS' victims then!?!?! I had heard this has been a problem with various users, primarily owners of ver 1.3 mobo's across the whole board of ASUS mobo's.

So is the solution is to just put in another processor, download the BIOS and flash it then change my processor to my intended Core 2 Duo???

Many Thanks


A:Another ASUS mobo victim!?!?

Dunno, I've built over 100+ Asus systems (including three of your precise model) with absolutely no problems. Building systems requires some degree of savvy and technical know-how in order to investigate and troubleshoot common problems. Throw in the occasional bad or incompatible/cheap hardware (memory, cpu's, psu's, etc.etc.) and best practices overrule assumptions.

I've never had your issue with any revision BIOS in the P5B-VM series with C2D cpu's. As you hear a "beep", this means it is posting so it's something else you have confused or misconfigured. It has integrated video and you're supposed to connect to this for the first boot in order to then configure a discrete PCI-Express card (thus disabling the integrated).

I've seen this problem on an older build and the best solution was a new motherboard. It's all about the layout of devices fastened to the board, a microATX board gives less possibilities than a full ATX board. Then I had to get a taller tower case to hold the full ATX board but it worked out better than I planned as I could add a second HDD without interfering with other things. A possibility with the full ATX board is some have 2 PCIe X16 slots.

A:help OC'ing E8400 with ASUS Mobo

First off you should google Overclocking and find as much about it as possible.

Right were ready to begin The e8400 has a 9X multiplier and a base FSB clock of 333. So 9 X 333 = 3GHZ with 4 X 333 = 1333MHZ FSB.

You want to acheive a 1:1 ratio between your cpu and ram. In your case your ram is 800mhz so a setting of 400 for the fsb is what you want.

RAM = FSB x 2

So 400 x 2 will give you 800mhz

If the E8400's FSB base clock is increased to 400 you get an OC of 3.6GHZ (400 X 9) with a FSB of 1600MHZ (4 X 400).

im wondering is this a good motherboard to use with a athlon x2 6000+?

ty for your help.

A:ASUS M2N-E Sli Mobo Socket AM2.

It's a good board, but there are better ones. The MSI board is better. Also ASUS is very picky about brands of RAM.

Please try and clean the RAM slots on the motherboard with a compressed air blast (you can get it in a can). Then try one stick at a time, and in each slot at a time. You might find that one of the slots has failed.

A:Asus Mobo problem

Before resorting to any radical hardware change, I would advise you to boot your system with minimum required hardware; i.e. HDD with OS on it; One stick of ram; disconnect dvd as well; if you have onboard vga, you can try using that instead of your graphic card i.e. 4890. Also ensure that system is clean, and see what happens.

Have you tested your system's ram as well with memtest ?

Hey, simple question in theory: let a friend borrow my netbook; she forgot to pack the powercord for her trip and with hopeful intentions tried using a printer plug that just happened to be the same size... but different voltage.

As you all probably know, it wasn't good for the computer. Since then it hasn't turned on but someone did mention a potential fail-safe switch that could be on the motherboard, kind of like a a surge protector. When I plug it into the correct plug, none of the lights (charging included) come on, and it won't turn on with the battery fully removed too and at this point I'm out of ideas and hope is running out too.

So, is my 901 fried or is there some amazing recovery trick out there that I'm not aware of?

A:Is my Asus 901 mobo fried?


To be honest it doesn't sound good.....not sure about the fail safe switch....either way needs to be taken apart and maybe be not viable as if the MB is damaged which sound most likely it probably cost more than a new lappy.

I have an ASUS MB P5WD2 Premium and need some help as to wether I can upgrade from
a Pentium D 830 Dual core to one of the newer Core 2 Duo chips and just what this board might support.

Sorry, your board does not support any Core series processors.

Here's the CPU support list for your motherboard: Premium

I posted this in another section, but no one is helping me out. Hopefully someone here can.

Ok, so from what I understand, windows XP will only see a MAX of 3 gigs. I have a mobo that supports dual channel memory, and so far have 2 sicks of 1gig. I would like to fill the other 2 slots, but can I do it with 2 sticks of 512? Or do I have to exactly match whats in the other 2 slots?

My motherboard is an ASUS M2N32 SLI Deluxe

This is the ram I currently have....

And these ones have the EXACT SAME voltages and timings, just different speeds. So my question is... could I put these in with 2 sticks of 1gig, for a total of 3 gigs, in dual channel? Or do I HAVE to buy 4 gigs, with the loss of 1.

Thanks for the help. -Dennis

A:Ram question with ASUS mobo

Technically you can throw those (RAM at second URL) in there with your current 2 sticks. It's not best practice to mix and match RAM though. You should try to get your hands on another stick of what you have already. Although, I know it can be tough to hunt down the exact same RAM after you've had it for a while.

The links you provided are broken but I was able to hunt down the 2 I believe you meant to post.

Please verify:

You currently have -

But you're looking at -

I'm not sure what you're running on your machine to need an extra 1GB of RAM on top of the 2GB you already have. But what kind of performance increase are you expecting to see?

recently my hard drive crashed on me during a routine defrag, I got a "check disk" error, so i reboot and my comp cant find my OS (win 2000). so i bought a SATA drive and tried a fresh install with XP sp1 and i cant get past the 3rd party driver install ( for the raid controller on the mobo)
so i put another hard drive in (WD IDE) and when i try to install xp i says it doesn't see a hard drive. i went into the bios and i can see it there. the hard drive is set as master and iv checked all connections and cables.
any one know what could cause this? would flashing my BIOS help?

any advice appreciated.

Let's talk about the WD IDE drive. If you have it alone on a ribbon cable, you must remove all jumpers and put it on the end of the ribbon cable in master position. See if that helps.

A:Just asking some info about what I could put on my asus mobo

Asus should have the manual online.

You could get a faster CPU, more ram and a new video card.

Yes your RAM will work with that motherboard but it will only operate at PC2100 speeds (AKA: DDR266 (I think)).

Vista 64bit
Asus Rampage Formula motherboard
HD 4870 X2 GPU

The sound was fine until recently. Starting a couple of months ago, I would intermittently get no sound after booting up. I would always solve this by disabling AMD High Definition Audio Device under Device Manager.

A couple of days ago, this no longer worked. Over the last couple of days, I have tried nearly everything; I have uninstalled the drivers for both of the sound controllers and reinstalled them countless times, I have installed Realtek HD sound drivers, reinstalled ATI Catalyst, ensuring that the sound driver is being installed, switched to AC97 in BIOS and then back to HD, but nothing seems to work.

This is how the sound controllers appear under Device Manager. I don't understand why there are two. I guess the first is the GPU one?

I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

Of the three, which is the best??? I am a hardcore gamer.. I play games like far cry, Tribes: Vengeance, and so on...

Thanks, Zman

A:How do DFI Mobo's compare to MSI and Asus?

From what I hear, DFI is feature packed, and a good board for someone who really wants to OC and squeeze out a few frames out of their system, Not that this can't be done with an ASUS.
On the downside, I have heard that the DFI boards aren't that stable, ever. If you OC, you know how frustrating it can be to have your board lock up as you try to find the perfect settings, and then having to clear the CMOS. (In that respect I would compare it with a Gigabyte board)

MSI is good, my favorite thing about MSI is the documentation that comes with the board, usually everything is explained very clearly and there is no need to guess what the right setting or jumper would be.

ASUS is just a all around great board! You can't go wrong there.
My 939 system uses a Chaintech Zenith VE, also a very nice board and so far I love it!
